Hints From “Buddha’s Little Instruction Book”

“When you eat, eat slowly and listen to your body. Let your stomach tell you when to stop, not your eyes or your tongue.”

–from “Buddha’s Little Instruction Book,” by Jack Kornfield.  Kornfield is one of the best-known teachers of Buddhism in the U.S. and a founder of the Spirit Rock Center, Woodacre, Marin County.  Click here to participate with him in a brief guided meditation.

  1. Thank you, Gary, for offering the Jack Kornfield meditation on compassion. It came at a time when I really needed it. It reminds me how all of life is linked together. How food and cooking are linked to health and fitness; how food is linked to emotional health and balance; how music and art are linked to and represent spirit. How we are linked together as one great creative experience. And with you as Chef, everything is linked together in a wonderful health experience that is always delicious!
